Ask any non-veg aficionado what they’d like to have, and their first answer would be chicken. Chicken is something that people just can’t get enough of. You can grill it and put it in salads, toss it in a rich gravy, make tikkas or pour it into sauce – chicken in any form is delicious. But most of the time, when you order chicken or cook it at home, it’s heavy in texture and taste. We use tons of butter, ghee, masalas to make it tasteful. But that often leads to acidification and gives you an unpleasant feeling. So, how do you make a delicious chicken recipe that’s healthy too? We have exactly the recipes you need! Check out some healthy chicken recipes below:
